The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (SECE) of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) will be opening this new post-graduate course in October 2014.
MSCM & ISM will be the first postgraduate subject specifically dedicated to in silico medicine. This is a really positive sign for the VPH community that reinforces the increasing importance of computer simulation in medical research.
The subject has been proposed by Research Professor Georgios Stamatakos, ICCS-NTUA, a very active VPH member and coordinator of the running VPH project CHIC “Computational Horizons In Cancer” (http://chic-vph.eu/)
The basic textbook that will be used in the course is "Multiscale Cancer Modeling", edited by Tomas Deisboeck and Georgios S . Stamatakos, together with additional material including the Proceedings of the Virtual Physiological Human Conference held in London in 2012: "VPH2012 – Integrative Approaches to Computational Biomedicine"
The postgraduate course will focus on the following 8 topics:
